It's been a looooong time since I've had a kitten! Most of what I did was common sense... don't wean her too fast, give her a mix of hard and wet food until she can handle hard food, don't waste money on the cheap junk food that's mostly corn (Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul was my favorite; it's a little more expensive upfront, but it lasts a lot longer than junk food so it's cheaper at the end of the month).
And I'm totally sold on using pellets with a pee mat instead of kitty litter. I used litter for 15 years and it always kinda smelled, and Mojo would track it everywhere so it always made a mess. The pee mats are a lot easier to clean, my house doesn't smell anymore, and I can see immediately if there are any urinary problems. And it's a little cheaper, too.
For the next year or so, you're going to see the sweetest and most hilarious things from Clouseau! I'm more than a little jealous :-D
(Oh, and for the record... before Charlie and Mojo found me, I was never a fan of cats)
